jeremiah wright who was the obamas' pastor in chicago and became a lightning rod in the 2008 campaign when it was revealed he said the u.s. brought the 9/11 attacks upon itself among other comments. at this event then-senator obama expressed pride in reverend wright. >> i've got to give a special shout out to my pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me -- [laughter] he's a friend and a great leader. >> reporter: the obama campaign calls this 2007 video a distraction and is accusing allies of mitt romney of recirculating clips of a 2007 event that was open to the press. >> desperate attempt to change the subject from a video in which mitt romney wrote off half of the american people are circulating a video that was covered by the campaign press corps at that time. >> reporter: the speech was june 2007, more than six months before the iowa caucuses. at that point be then-senator obama was considered a long shot, now it's getting some attention. megyn? megyn: mike emanuel, thank you. so what impact, if any, will this video have on the campaign? ch
then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act and said this is too serious a problemch we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to d do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here is the money to rebuild. we're in the going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of american family. what is happening in new orlea
's infactuation with reverend jeremiah wright. >> roy watkins, is there significanceo this, do you believe? >> i think there's no material significance here, but the republicans are very good at taking nothing and turning it into what appears to be something. we have to remember we live in a country that has forever been poise upped by the psychological disease of racism. and it doesn't take much to spark that back up. if you look at what president obama is saying, of course white politicians wouldn't say what he's saying because african-americans have a unique history in this country. we have a history of documented discrimination that is, in fact, undeniable. so when you look at what happened to katrina, anybody in their right mind would say, yes, there's some disparity there and any president, white or black, should note the disparity, not as a criticism on the greatness of america but really as an opportunity for our country to get a little bit better. >> i don't think that's what president obama was doing. >> go ahead, erick. >> he's telling a black crowd, he uses the phrase regarding hurri
